It's great to find something that makes us more efficient. A lot of time people need to get their insurance authorized, so it's convenient to print it out directly from the application instead of searching through orders. The Rural/Metro team feels that the Patient Placement Referral Network is a wonderful program.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 16, 2007
Patient Placement Systems, a leading provider of patient referral solutions, today announced that two continuing care service providers and two hospitals were recognized as its customer appreciation award winners. The four winners distinguished themselves through their commitment to excellence and use of innovative technology to ensure their patients have an optimal referral and transfer experience. Patient Placement Systems connects continuing care providers, automating the patient placement process.
"We are proud to recognize these four special companies," said Eric Christ, president, Patient Placement Systems. "Moving a patient to a long-term acute care facility, a short-term rehabilitation clinic, or another continuing care provider typically involves a manual and challenging process. These organizations have each demonstrated the highest standards in incorporating methods and technology to automate and make this process more efficient, and therefore, more satisfactory for the patients and families involved, as well as the facilities."
"We appreciate the recognition," said Sabrina Patterson, intake team leader, with Mid South Home Health, a Gentiva Health Services company. "We all love the Patient Placement Referral Network. We're trying to get everyone else to use it because it's a technology that makes our lives so much easier. We no longer have problems with faxes. If someone says they sent you something, you can verify because it's a great tracking system."
Patient Placement Systems digitally connects all the parties involved in the process of referring and transferring patients from one facility to another. The Patient Placement Referral Network improves information flow and communication so that each facility has the information needed at the right time. It links hospitals and providers using a secure, HIPAA-compliant Web-based application making the process of placing a patient from one facility to another more secure, effective, and timely.
Winners were recognized formally and received their awards at recent regional awards luncheons. The four winners of the 2007 Patient Placement Customer Appreciation Awards are:
- Princeton Baptist Medical Center, acute care hospital, Birmingham, Alabama
- Floyd Behavioral Health Center, specialty hospital, Rome, Georgia
- Gentiva Health Services - Alabama, multi-location home health service provider, regional headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama
- Rural/Metro Corporation, transport service provider, Bessemer, Alabama
"We are focused on helping our patients so it's nice to receive an award that recognizes that effort," said Shaun Prince, from Rural/Metro Corporation. "It's great to find something that makes us more efficient. A lot of time people need to get their insurance authorized, so it's convenient to print it out directly from the application instead of searching through orders. The Rural/Metro team feels that the Patient Placement Referral Network is a wonderful program."
